IN-PROGRESS

 

wood gates
The process. Drawn toward a design that will compliment a style of postmodern architecture predicated by plate windows and horizontal planes. An architectural motif that is commonly without defining details. Clean, angular, unfettered. Offering a need for the intimacy of workmanship and design at the entry level with both girth and muscle but with the scrutiny of a somewhat complex system of joints.

Introducing a continuous pair of tenons in a contrasting, durable species. An approach that stabilizes the horizontal members over a given span, while offering a little head-scratching complexity.

The upper slats in the foreground are collected and the two long tenons are fed through. For the eventual assembly, the slats will be separated with spacers to insure the spacing between each slat is equal. The two through-tenons are not, contrary to popular thought, glued. They are loose tenons that allow the slats to breath freely over the seasons.

In the background Ben works on the pair of gate styles #87.

Poised for the final assembly of Garden Gate #115. Oodles of joints. Making for a somewhat demanding process requiring the Zen-ness of a calm competent woodworker whose wits never fray.
